Customs Union Technical Regulations Project for vehicles.

Ministry of Economic Development released a draft of the Technical Regulations on safety of vehicles for the countries of the Eurasian Economic Community (Belarus, Russia and Kazakhstan). In future the Unit Technical Regulations will replace the relevant national documents.

As mentioned in the document, the objects of Technical Regulation are vehicles, manufactured in the Member States of the Eurasian Economic Community (EurAsEC) , imported for more than six months on a single customs territory of the EurAsEC vehicles, regardless of the volume of imported batch and release dates that are intended for sale and (or) operation.
The scope of the technical regulation also covers vehicle components that affect their safety.

Requirements of technical regulations are harmonized with the requirements of the Rules of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (ECE Regulations), adopted on the basis of the “Agreement on the Adoption of Uniform Technical Prescriptions for Wheeled Vehicles ...” signed in Geneva on March 20, 1958, as well as the Global Technical regulations adopted on 25 June 1998
In addition, minimum necessary regulatory requirements for emissions of harmful substances (pollutants) vehicles and internal combustion engines, as well as minimum requirements for internal combustion engines are included in the Technical Regulations.

 

Current national Technical Regulations on the safety of wheeled vehicles was approved in Russia in September 2009 and came into effect in late 2010 (after 12 months after the official announcement).
